The American Foreign Policy Intelligencia…SLIM PICKENS

BOMB SHIT, THEN RE-BOMB THE SHIT WE’VE BOMBED!

By my observation, Barack Obama has dropped a lot of bombs in his tenure.

There’s not a wedding or funeral in the general proximity of The Levant that is not potential drone-bait. I’d put him up there in the top-six of bombin’ Presidents, right behind the Bushes, LBJ, FDR, Nixon, and Truman — but ahead of Reagan and Clinton. Y’know right on the mid-level of the distribution of sky-borne murder-boners we have come to expect from our modern Commanders-in-Chief.

Nonetheless, in modern parlance, no matter how much you make the rubble bounce, there are always almost universal calls from our “serious” 535 or so aspirants for the White House to bomb until the rubble turns to sand…and then bomb until it is glass…and then bomb the shards back into sand again…just for good measure.

Barack Obama was on Sunday urged to take a tougher approach towards Russia and Syria, as Republicans and Democrats returned from their summer vacations in confrontational mood.

Oh those “moods” without personal consequence…an accurate summation of modern American Foreign Policy.

A sophisticated people who elect the sophisticated leadership we deserve…even if the rest of the world does not.
